I have just learned that Silent Bob, also know by his real name as Kevin Smith, has recently lost a lot of weight. He appeared in an interview on The Joy Behar Show and explained how he felt pressured to lose weight after being kicked off a flight in the USA.
What he did not say in the interview was how he has lost weight. But a little research has revealed a few possible facts about Kevin Smith’s weight loss.
In the interview he seemed very excited, which could be a sign that he is simply following a really healthy and nutritious diet while performing regular intensive exercise workouts. This could lead him to have increased energy levels which would make him seem a bit hyper.
Southwest Airline Diet
In his Twitter pages he joked that he called his weight loss plan the “Southwest Airline Diet” because it was after being booted from a Southwest Airline flight that he decided to lose weight.
After Kevin Smith “tweeted” about his experiences Southwest Airline did issue an apology. The reason for him being kicked off the flight is not known, although one steward at first said that the captain said he was a health and safety risk. However, later the captain of the flight said that he never made such a statement.
Anyway, he is losing weight, or possibly has lost weight and will lose not more, as a result of the experience.
Kevin did tell Joy Behar that he really does not like the whole losing weight thing at all.
Here is his first Tweet on the subject:
“Dear @SouthwestAir – I know I’m fat, but was Captain Leysath really justified in throwing me off a flight for which I was already seated?” – twitter.com/ThatKevinSmith/status/9079110598
Strangely, although kicked off one flight (on which he had a actually bought 2 seats) he was then given a voucher to buy a ticket for another flight. He followed this up with another Tweet:
“Hey @SouthwestAir! Look how fat I am on your plane! Quick! Throw me off!” http://twitpic.com/1340gw
It would be nice to hear how Kevin has lost 65 pounds as that is a huge amount of fat to lose. But he is Silent Bob, and if he does not want to tell us, then we just have to accept it.
